She played a protagonist in the tv series, as Robyn McCall, a.k.a. “The Equalizer”, a divorced single mother and a former CIA operative, who possesses extensive skills and fightbacks for the vigilante for justice.
Moreover, we also met the following characters-

- Adam Goldberg as Harry Keshegian who is Melody’s husband and a master hacker
- Liza Lapira as Melody “Mel” Bayani, a former Air Force sniper
- Laya DeLeon Hayes as Delilah McCall, Robyn’s 15-year-old daughter.

The story revolves around Queen Latifa as Robyn McCall who is a mystifying woman in New York City who is a single mother to teenage daughter Delilah. She is a former operative of the CIA with a mysterious background. She serves as a guardian angel for those who cannot defend themselves by using her extensive skills who have nowhere else to turn. The show projects the moral character of Mccall who actually works to equalize the injustice.
However, the audience expects a more complex and twisted story for the subsequent season.
The trailer was already a long time back before the release of the first episode. It projected the starring character Queen Latifa, a former CIA operative who is into equalizing injustice and stopping the evils. Latifah’s empathetic performance in the show, attracted the audience to watch the whole series.
Season 1 is appreciated for Latifa’s empathetic performance which hooked the audience throughout. The rest of the castings are also synchronized and properly served but if we look at the reviews on the plot, it’s not that good. So the producers and team must think to revise the story with some changes that can actually thrill the audience from the storyline as well in the subsequent season.
